The Broad Haven Triangle (Episode 2)

In 1977, during the height of the Cold War and amidst the release of the iconic film Close Encounters of the Third Kind, a group of schoolboys in the Welsh coastal town of Broad Haven witnessed a cigar-shaped spacecraft rising from nearby trees. This event triggered a wave of over 450 reports of UFO and alien encounters in the area, marking the largest mass sighting in UK history. As investigators probed these sightings, they discovered striking parallels with Welsh and Celtic folklore, where faeries were known as mischievous tricksters.
